Teresa Ascone has taught watercolor for more than 30 years and introduced hundreds of people to the marvelous world of creativity. Teaching led to her two books, We’re All Artists: Watercolor for Everyone and Painting Pleasure: Adventures in Watercolor, and The Ultimate Palette, for which she holds a design patent. Teresa created UAA’s Ultimate Watercolor Academy. Its success resulted in her nomination for the UAA 2000 Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence.
Lately, Teresa’s artwork has taken a whimsical turn with her fairy tales. Her first, The Berry Fairies of Alaska, introduced the whimsical world of the fairies; the second, Alaska Berry Fairies ~ Lizzie Scarlet, received the December 2010 Reviewer’s Choice Award at Midwest Book Review’s Children’s Bookwatch.
Taku Graphics sells her images on notecards, gift cards, and magnets. The fairy tales are represented by Taku Graphics and The News Group.

Average review
I was so pleased with the results I got from following this tutorial. I didn't have the exact colours so substituted similar from what I did have. Initially I was a bit worried as it was a lot of text and no pictures or video to guide me but this could help your painting to be more individual and having the finished piece as a guide was helpful too. I'd love to see the addition of the painting at the end of each stage of the instructions so you have a visual of what the end of each step is. Awesome results and inspired me to use the techniques in other paintings too. Amazing value for money too!
